It just dawned on me today that I can make these for Spencer.

CHOCOLATE - COVERED BANANA POPS

4-5 ripe bananas
9 wooden ice cream sticks or skewers
2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp. shortening
Sprickle with candy decrative skrinkles

Cut each crosswise & insert wooden stick into each banana piece (before peeling so that it does split), and place on wax paper covered tray, Freeze until firm (about 3 hours). In micro melt chocolate chips & shortening (I used a 2 cup measuring cup & sat it in a larger dish of water) Heating 1 min at a time until melted. Remove bananas from freezer just before dipping. Dip each piece into chocolate (I spooned it over the bananas); sprinkle with nuts (sprinkles [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] ) Cover and return to freezer.

I have been used B/C & Cakemate (McCormick) for the past 5 years. No Problems (when i first called 5 years ago I was told they were safe I have not checked since because I have a large stock)

I *LOVE* chocolate covered bananas! I usually slice the bananas into chips, then freeze, then coat...then put on wax paper to refreeze, then pop in a container. Pop-able chips :-) I have a hard time biting into a frozen banana, for some reason it hurts my teeth.

This was mentioned on another allergy forum recently and I made some for my son.
In a pinch, the handle of a spoon works like a popsicle stick. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img]
Actually, I had dark chocolate and he seemed to think it was great. I'll try it next time with a sweeter chocolate and see what he thinks.

When you say "shortening" are you referring to Crisco??

What kind of chocolate chips are you using? I used to use Tropical source chocolate chips until my son developed peanut allergy. The bags says may contain traces of nuts. I cannot find a brand that tastes half way decent.

Our local wild oats just started carrying the Enjoy life chocolate chips and they are really good!
